Hi all,

just wondering if anyone else's Type R (FN2) pulls over to the right slightly? I have only had the car for a week or so and just started to notice that if i let go of the steering wheel it automatically starts pulling over to the right. Its not a massive amount but just wondering if this is normal? If not, is it just tracking or something?

Also, should i drive for about 10 minuets before using VTEC? Think i read somewhere it needs to warm up?

Massive n00b here so sorry if these are obvious.

p.s. great forum been reading lots!

Sounds like your tracking out.

As for VTEC, it won't engage until the engine is up to temp but either way, I wouldn't advise revving the pants off of a cold engine.

Drive it for about 5-10 minutes before having fun ;)

either tracking OR someone had fitted two different tyres (with different tread depths) to the front wheels

Thanks all, i will nip down the garage and get the tracking looked at first of all. Any ideas of what it would cost?

First thing to do is check your tyre pressures :)

@Revs_FN2 - what tyre pressure should it be set to? I did some reading online and saw someone recommending 34 psi - ill check this when i get in from work.

^^ What Laney says if you're running stock rims (Blades run a higher pressure). It'll say on the sticker below the latch for the drivers door :)

Mine has a really slow puncture on the front drivers side and starts pulling to the right when it gets below 25 psi. As someone above mentioned with tyre pressures.

Could also be the rds (and these have got in a right state lately), also there was a poll on civic type r site which way does your car pull and it seems it's a popular issue, mine does every now and then ever so slightly but it does it

Mine cost £39 for full laser tracking. You can watch a computer screen as the adjust each wheel

Made a huge difference.
